Forever in our hearts

Forever in my heart - my dearly loved and loving mother - passed away peacefully at home 19 July 2012. A blessed release from her suffering. Rest peacefully dear Mum.

30 July 1924 - 19 July 2012

And sending all my love to my wonderful father. He is greatly admired by his family and all that know him, for his love and dedication to Mum. He never wavered from his determination to look after her at home for as long as possible.  It is time to look after yourself now Dad.  I love you  xx

Straight out of camera, TV priority 1/200 seconds, F2.8, rested on mirror with black backdrop, natural window light.
